The Governors and Principal of Ron Dearing University Technical College (UTC) seek a talented and inspirational Lead Practitioner (English, SCITT & Teaching & Learning) to join the Leadership Team.

Ron Dearing UTC is a brand new school for 14-19 year olds which opened in Hull city centre in September 2017.

Working in close partnership with The University of Hull and our employer partners, we aim to revolutionise the education system in the UK by offering our students a totally unique way to learn. 

In addition to the university and our employer partners, we work closely with The Gorse Academies Trust, a Leeds-based MAT containing a number of outstanding academies and an outstanding SCITT – The Gorse SCITT.   In order to roll out their highly effective teacher training programme to East Yorkshire, The Gorse SCITT has secured funding to set up a Hull branch within Ron Dearing UTC.  Our new Lead Practitioner will be employed by Ron Dearing UTC to work with our Senior Assistant Principal to develop and co-ordinate our new SCITT. 

In addition you will:

  • lead the development of our Stretch and Challenge policy and practice, establishing the school as a centre of excellence for the teaching of more-able students
  • teach English Language and English Literature to GCSE and possibly A-Level. 

This is not your average leadership role … this truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make your mark on education in this country.  Together we will develop our revolutionary approach to teaching and learning and teacher training. 

If this opportunity excites you as much as it does us we look forward to hearing from you.
